Webinar COVID-19: Resilience Planning & Emergency Management 

Friday May 7th 16:00-17:00 BST 

In the latest of our series of webinars (in partnership with The International Emergency Managers Society – TIEMS, and Capacity Building International - CBI) our speakers will explore more of the key lessons and themes that have emerged from the Covid-19 crisis, concentrating on the perspectives of strengthening resilience planning and the implications for the emergency management profession going forward.

We will examine how Covid-19 has required different ways of resilience partnership working in the UK, placing new demands on emergency managers; the dynamics of national direction of responses to a health-led emergency, and some of the early challenges of planning for recovery and renewal at the local level.

In introducing a subject that we will explore in further detail with TIEMS, later in this series, we also ask the question of how prepared for Covid-19 the Emergency Management profession feels it was, the challenges that may have arisen for members of TIEMS, and the opportunities for further enhancing the work of the profession.

After the presentations participants will then be given the opportunity to engage with our panellists through a Q&A session.

Panel:

  • Duncan Shaw - Professor of Operational Research and Critical Systems, Alliance Manchester Business School
  • David Powell - Principal Advisor in Recovery, Renewal, Resilience, Humanitarian and Conflict Response Institute
  • Harald Dragar – President of The International Emergency Managers Society (TIEMS)
